For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25:35-36.
The needs of my brothers and sisters around me are so great, I do not know where to start. There is a strong desire, a thirst to quench, to reach out and help others. But then I sit back and list the stipulations or the reason this could go very wrong. This is when I think of You asking to feed, clothe and aid the sick and visit the imprisoned, and it is clear You do not ask me to ask, You ask me to serve.
May I truly see You in those I will help today. And when I cannot, give me the strength to continue giving. Because even when I am blind to you, You are the one who stands before me asking for more.
Today I was helped. I went to this restaurant to eat. As I was going through the line I was admiring how beautiful and neatly dressed the woman was ahead of me. As I got to the register the checker told me My food was paid for by this wonderful woman. I had written on my facebook page that i would carry myself in such a way that people would recognize the spirit of God in me. I thanked the beautiful woman and said "God bless you"
Thanks be to GOD! Let us continue to lift up HIS name.
